She has been involved in many different organizations in Montgomery County, having served as president of the Montgomery County Community Foundation, Montgomery County Extension Board and Council and a board member of MUFFY. Currently, she is active with the Waynetown United Methodist Church, Women’s Legacy Fund, Montgomery County Retired Teachers and 4-H, as a judge for various counties and the state fair.

“It is a tremendous feeling to have an opportunity to serve Montgomery County as a member of the county council and move forward initiatives that will benefit our citizens,” Grimble said. “As a school educator and guidance director, I utilized teamwork, cooperative planning and open lines of communication — skills crucial for fair and effective government. The current county administration has taken positive steps to secure opportunities that will bring incremental growth to our area. Future planning must be guided by responsible budget considerations and a focus on additional employment and housing options. We are Stronger Working Together and can empower our community for new possibilities.”
